Fun Facts About May!

Feb FactsOne of the stand-out holidays of May in the United States, Mother's Day, has an interesting origin and some special facts about it as well. The holiday started in 1908 in Philadelphia and Grafton, West Virginia, thanks to Anna Marie Jarvis and the store owner who financed her, John Wanamaker. The day originated on the second Sunday in May because this is when Anna Jarvis held memorial services for her mother Ann Jarvis at the local church. In a way, Mother's Day is an ongoing, national commemoration of Ann Jarvis and her daughter's love for her. Interestingly, Anna Jarvis came to hate the holiday she had founded, because she believed it had become nothing but a huge sales promotion for stores and had lost all meaning as a family ritual.

Student-led Conferences

Mad Libs IdeaThe best thing I've seen in conferences was when the school I teach at went to Student-led Conferences! Each student leads their own conference with their parents, explaining grades, achievement as compared to goals written earlier. The students have prepared for the conferences and the parents have been given questions to ask relating to assignments from the term. I don't know who came up with the idea, but EVERY student has a conference and takes ownership of his/her education! Teachers are available if there are questions, grade sheets from each subject are at hand, and the child has to answer for his/her progress. If there is a need for all teachers to be there, conferences can be scheduled on an individual basis.
